Alberta Rainwater Harvesting for Drinking Water

Alternative to a Well

 The system harvest water from the entire new constructed pole building. The client took the gamble and first attempted to drilled a well, it resulted in a $10,000 bill and unfortunately no water. This is a far too common reality for homeownesr across Canada, rain is much more predictable than underground water and aquifers, making rainwater harvesting the more logical choice.


Professional Design

This rainwater harvesting system is designed to be the primary source for potable water, with a backup water source of hauled water. Based on the initial analysis this system can harvest approximately 205,100 litres annually.  



Attention to Detail

Cleanflo provided a complete package with professional design. The shop was able to be built Rain Water Harvesting ready so that there were no additional costs in re-working conventional building facilities to fit our Rain Water Harvesting System. It allowed the variety of contractors to work seamlessly together and to prevent any roadblocks before installation and prevented associated extra costs of re-working.


Potable Safe Materials

As this is a potable drinking water system Cleanflo took a very close look at the materials being used, to prevent any contamination leaching into the harvested rain water. 


Frost Protected Installtion

In order to prevent frost this tank was insulated with rigid insulation on the top and sides.   This system will be operational all year and never freeze.  The water lines supplying water inside the building are buried below frost and insulated as well. 

Double Pre-Filtration

Rainwater from each side of the roof is directed to one of the 3 in 1 self cleaning pre-filters.  Each prefilter can handle 5000 sqft. this 10,000 sqft. building. These 3-in-1 pre-filters provide a first flush, prefilter and aeration. Rainwater in our tank is clean enough to drink with some additional filtration and sanitiation.
